Our experience working with Jen has been nothing but positive, form our first contact with her. We were referred to her from friends who had worked with her in the past and who had had a great experience with her as well. We decided we wanted to purchase a condo fairly late and had a rather short timeframe to find a home that we loved. Jen made herself available whenever was convenient for us and we were able to start searching for a home quickly thanks to her efficiency. Jen is a very organized realtor, and I cannot emphasize enough how important this quality has been in our home search.
First, Jen was always extremely quick to respond to our many texts, phone calls, and emails regarding all the questions that we had as first time homebuyers. She listened carefully to what we were looking for, and focused her search with those criteria in mind. She was always punctual to showings, and even printed out a booklet with the properties we were scheduled to visit. This made it easy to organize our thoughts as we went from home to home, keeping each property straight in our minds! Also, Jen is a very knowledgeable realtor, and she was able to point our attention to some of the things that we should keep in mind when searching for a home, for example, HOA dues, taxes, the age of the amenities, ways to organize the space, ideas on how to spruce up the apartment, etc.
When we found a home that we loved and wanted to place an offer, she was able to present a price search comparison that same day that allowed us to place a competitive and fair offer, which was accepted thanks to her organization in getting the required documentation together quickly and professionally.
She was also able to help us navigate through the mortgage application process, offering great recommendation of people she has worked with in the past that are equally organized and professional as she is.
Once again, thank you Jen, and we cannot recommend you enough to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Chicago area.
